Tampa, Fla. (70 WFLA)-The two day iHeart Radio Music Festival is this weekend in Las Vegas. For one music fan, returning to Las Vegas is a step in closure.
Her name is Melissa Wall, a survivor of the October 1st, 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting. 58 people died and hundreds were injured.
Melissa's aunt won tickets through an IHeart Radio contest. With the tickets, Melissa and her aunt, will meet Jason Aldean, the singer song writer who was performing on stage when the shooting started.
